Praise for Second Wind

“Describing his races tack-by-tack and gust-by-gust, Philbrick crosses the finish line with sure-to-be satisfied readers interested in sailing and the personal life of this highly popular author.”–Booklist

Praise for Valiant Ambition:

“May be one of the greatest what-if books of the age–a volume that turns one of America’s best-known narratives on its head.”–Boston Globe

“A suspenseful, richly detailed, and deeply researched book about the revolutionary struggle that bound George Washington and Benedict Arnold together and almost disastrous dysfunction of America’s revolutionary government that helped drive them apart.”–The New York Review of Books

“Clear and insightful, it consolidates his reputation as one of America’s foremost practitioners of narrative nonfiction.”–Wall Street Journal

“Philbrick is both a meticulous historian and a captivating storyteller. The book has unforgettable novelistic details [and] also contains much astute historical analysis and argument. Philbrick sees Arnold not as the man who almost lost the war so much as the catalyst that helped to win it.”–Christian Science Monitor

Praise for Bunker Hill:

“A masterpiece of narrative and perspective.”–Boston Globe

“A tour de force . . .”–Chicago Tribune

“Popular history at its best–a taut narrative with a novelist’s touch, grounded in careful research.”–Miami Herald

“A story that resonates with leadership lessons for all times.”–Walter Isaacson, The Washington Post
